IEEE 802.1 Standards for Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN)

IEEE 802.1 Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) is an enabler of Industry 4.0, i.e., smart factory of cyber physical systems. TSN is the foundation to provide connectivity and real-time quality of service to time and mission critical industrial applications on converged networks of operations technology and information technology and converging multiple independent applications in one network enabling real-time communication on the same infrastructure (cables, bridges). TSN meets these requirements by providing interoperability via open standards. TSN provides synchronization and supports
real-time communication for, e.g., closed loop control over a single standard Ethernet network.

This webinar series would be of interest to those in the following industries: 

  • Smart Manufacturing
  • Mobility/Automotive
  • Industrial Automation
  • Aerospace

IEEE 802.1 TSN Webinar:  Audio/Visual Bridging 

Thursday, 9 June 2022 | 11:00AM ET

The Audio Video Bridging (AVB) IEEE 802.1 Standards work culminated with the AVB Profile Standard (IEEE 802.1BA).  This initial Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) project provides a plug-and-play solution for audio and video streams by reserving bandwidth for these streams ahead of non-reserved flows.  It also supports synchronous playback by end nodes anywhere in an arbitrary shaped network that are within bridge hop counts that support a latency under the flows requested limits. 

After AVB’s completion, other industries requested enhancements to the AVB base standards to support more use cases.  Thus the AVB Group changed its name to the Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) Group to show its support for all applicable use cases.  But this was a name change only as most of AVB’s base standards are still used, with some enhancements and some new base standards, for the new use cases. 

This webinar will describe the goals of the AVB project and the IEEE 802.1 Standards that were developed for each problem area and their solutions.  This will give participants a better understanding of what the AVB project did and why, as a method to better understand the structure of the TSN Standards and the subsequent TSN use case Profiles.

Donald R. Pannell:  Fellow, Automotive Ethernet Networking, NXP Semiconductors



Don Pannell has architected Ethernet switches and networking solutions for over 25+ years, focusing on Automotive Ethernet solutions for the last 15 plus years.  He has been an active participant and contributor in both IEEE 802.3 and IEEE 802.1 for almost 25 years.  Don organized the 802.3 Call for Interest (CFI) for RTPGE which resulted in the 1000BASE-T1 Automotive PHY we have today, and he started the Time Aware Shaper project in 802.1, now known as IEEE 802.1Qbv.  More recently he helped start the new 802.1 Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) Automotive Profile project (P802.1DG) and the IEEE P802.1ASds amendment to add 10BASE-T1S support to gPTP. 

Don has worked on the IEEE 802.1 AVB/TSN standards since their beginning and he is currently Secretary of the IEEE 1722 working group and editor of the new IEEE 1722b standard (which standardizes end node protocols for AVB/TSN). He worked on his 1st IEEE standard in 1980 and was Vice Chair of the Board of the VESA standards association in 1990. He has been a lead architect for over 30 years at companies including Sierra Semiconductor, I‐Cube, Marvell and now NXP.  Don currently has over 95 patents granted with more in the works and he received his BSEE degree from Loyola University in California.

The Transport and Impact of Synchronization in Time-Sensitive Networking - An Introduction to IEEE 802.1AS
Recorded onThursday, 24 February 2022 (Register to Watch)

This webinar will give an introduction to IEEE 802.1AS, including synchronization concepts and applications. IEEE 802.1AS is a profile of IEEE Std 1588. It specifies protocols and procedures that enable systems and networks to meet time-synchronization requirements for time-sensitive applications, such as audio, video, and time-sensitive control. Synchronization is one of the key components of the TSN toolset, needed for equipment used in packet networks where time-sensitive functions are performed. IEEE 802.1AS is used in several applications, such as Audio and Video, Industrial Automation (e.g. smart manufacturing), Automotive, and Aerospace.


Driving Digital Transformation through IEEE 802.1 TSN - An Overview of Time-Sensitive Networking
Recorded on Thursday, 02 December 2021 (Register to Watch)


This webinar will give an introduction to the basics of IEEE 802.1 Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN), including base concepts and application areas. TSN provides deterministic data packet transport such that packets are delivered within a time window without loss or delay due to congestion or errors. The various TSN techniques are specified by a set of base IEEE 802® TSN standards, colloquially referred to as the “TSN toolset”. In order to facilitate the adoption of TSN, industry-specific “TSN profile” standards to select which of the base standards in the TSN toolset to use, and how to use them in a given industry vertical.



The Impact of Time-Sensitive Networks - An Introduction to IEEE 802.1
Recorded On 16 September 2021 
(Register to Watch)

This webinar will give an introduction to the market-relevant standards of the IEEE 802.1 Working Group.  This group was created over 40 years ago and developed the base architecture and bridging standards for IEEE 802 technologies.  While MAC bridging has evolved into VLAN bridging it has also been enhanced with features supporting time-sensitive networking (TSN).  In addition, the WG has also developed other higher-layer standards including link aggregation (LAG), link discovery (LLDP), encryption (MACsec), and authentication (1X).  Recently the group has developed profiles of TSN features for specific verticals.
